Away In A Manger

Arr'd by Karen Smith & David Sniyder

Joy to the world!
The Lord is come:
Let earth receive her King!
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven
And nature sing.

Joy to the earth!
The Saviour reigns:
Let all their songs employ,
While fields and floods,
Rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.
 

No more let sins and sorrow grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground:
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as , far as the curse is found.


He rules the earth
with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness
And wonders of his love,
And wonders of his love,
And wonders, wonders of his love.

All Poor Ones and Humble VU68

All poor ones and humble and all those who stumble,
Come hastening, and feel not afraid;
For Jesus, our treasure, with love past all measure,
In lowly poor manger was laid.
Though wise men who found him laid rich gifts around him,
Yet oxen they gave him their hay,
And Jesus in beauty accepted their duty;
Contented in manger he lay.

Refrain:   Then haste we to show him the praises we owe him;
Our service he ne'er can despise;
Whose love still is able to show us that stable,
Where softly in manger he lies.



The Christ Child will lead us, the Good Shepherd feed us
And with us abide till his day.
Then hatred he'll banish; then sorrow will vanish,
And death and despair flee away.
And he shall reign ever, and nothing shall sever
From us the great love of our King;
His peace and his pity shall bless his fair city;
His praises we ever shall sing.

Refrain

Sung Dedication

Grant us, God, the grace of giving,
With a spirit large and free,
That ourselves and all our living
We may offer faithfully.


Prayers of the People

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.




Good Christian Friends Rejoice (VU 35)

Good Christian friends, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Give ye heed to what we say: News! News!
Jesus Christ is born today;
Ox and ass before him bow,
And he is in the manger now.
Christ is born today!
Christ is born today!

Good Christian friends, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Now ye hear of endless bliss: Joy! Joy!
Jesus Christ was born for this!
He hath opened heaven's door,
And we are blest forever more.
Christ was born for this!
Christ was born for this!


Good Christian friends, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice;
Now ye need not fear the grave:
Peace! Peace!
Jesus Christ was born to save!
Calls you one and calls you all
To gain his everlasting hall.
Christ was born to save!
Christ was born to save!




Good King Wenceslas

(Arr'd by Melody Bober)
 




And as we wander out for a Cup of Good Cheer
we hear the gentle strains of some of our favourite Christmas carols...

Stay Safe All...

Silent Night (VU 67)

Silent night! Holy night!
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight:
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing Hallelujah,
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.


Still, Still, Still (VU 47)

Still, still, still:
The night is calm and still.
The Christ-child in
His Crib lies sleeping,
Angels round him
Watch are keeping.
Still, still, still:
The night is calm and still.

Sleep, sleep, sleep:
Sweet Jesus, softly sleep,
While Mary sings
And gently holds you,
Safely in her arms enfolds you.
Sleep, sleep, sleep:
Sweet Jesus softly sleep.
